I feel good working with Shatta Wale – Willis Beatz

Ever since the career of Ghanaian dancehall act Shatta wale was revived in 2013, he has been producing his own hits songs but for the past few years, the self acclaimed dancehall king has gained some interest working with the Takoradi – based music producer Williams Sarfo known in showbiz circle as Willis Beatz.

The Takoradi-based music producer who has produced a lot of hits songs has revealed that, he is much happy to work with such a great artiste who is taken Ghanaian music to the world because he will also be credited with some benefits. In an exclusive interview with Flex newspaper, Willis Beatz told our reporters that he does not fear working with him even though they are a lot of issues rumored about the dancehall artiste Shatta Wale.

“Shatta wale is a cool person who always wants people around him and has much experience in the music industry and is always ready to teach what he knows as far as music bussines is concerned. I learn a lot from him as an engineer and i am always glad working with him,” he stated.

Willis Beatz who has produced most of Shatta Wale’s hits songs including ‘DON’T GO THERE, TAKING OVER and the current banger FORGETTI expressed his readiness to work as a residence producer for the SM Empire if he would be allowed work with other musicians. He added that they are a lot of people who suggest that, we should do things that help us to overtake the entertainment industry in Africa from Nigerians and South Africans but to him, we can’t over take them due to their population but we should rather do things which will help us to sell the image of our entertainment industry to the world.

“Our musicians are doing well with their various music genres and also working hard to push our music industry the world, so every stakeholder in our entertainment industry should come together and help because that’s the best way our musicians can get more nominations in the world stage when it comes to an awards show,” he said.

Willis Beatz also made it clear that there are many music producers who are going into singing but to him, he doesn’t think he will do that because he is focusing on music production than to be an artiste in the near future, though he appreciates music producers who turn into artiste because it also showcase their talent in music.

The beats maker finally advised up and coming music producers to show respect to the elders who have been in the game for long and learn from them, moreover they should not stop praying because with God they shall go far with their work.
